An Alternative to Smoking Cigarettes
Many people use vaping products as an alternative way to achieve similar effects to smoking without having to smoke cigarettes. E-liquid contains Propylene Glycol (an ingredient in inhalers), Vegetable Glycerin, flavoring, and usually nicotine that produces the vapor when heated that you inhale instead of the smelly smoke you get from cigarettes. This means you won’t have to worry about your clothes, house, or car smelling of cigarette smoke. With an e-liquid flavor for every palette, the vapor produced when exhaled will have quite a pleasant scent. While this may bother non-smokers less than cigarettes, we suggest only vaping in designated areas when in public.
The Basic Parts of an E-Cigarette
There are many different types of e-cigarettes from pod systems to regulated mods to mech mods but they all have a few parts in common that work together to heat the e-liquid and produce vapor. Many new vapers may not realize exactly how a vape works, which is why the team at Madvapes will be happy to educate you! Most e-cigarettes consist of 3 main parts which include:
Coil/Atomizer: This is the heart of the device. Usually, coils and atomizers are made out of wire which is used as a heating element and cotton, which soaks up the juice. When the wire is heated, the juice soaked into cotton is vaporized. Coils and atomizers generally need to be replaced every 7-14 days.
Juice Reservoir/Mouthpiece: This is where the coil is housed and juice is added. Sometimes it is a refillable tank that screws onto the battery and other times it is a refillable pod that attaches to the battery. In some pod systems, the coil and the juice reservoir are one piece (the pod) and instead of just replacing the coil, you replace the entire pod. On tanks, the mouthpiece is a tip on top and usually, pods are mouthpieces themselves.
Battery: Obviously, the battery is used to power the heating element. Most often, the batteries are rechargeable, so you can plug it in to charge and re-use it over and over.
What About Health Risks?
E-cigarettes and other vaping products have received a lot of negative press in recent months, citing vapes as the cause of severe lung illnesses. After investigating, the CDC discovered over 90% of these cases were caused by black market THC cartridges and not nicotine vapes. While these products do come with their own health risks, much like any other recreational product such as alcohol and recreational marijuana, the severity of the problem has been exaggerated in many news stories. The team at Madvapes is here to ensure we provide our customers with high-quality products that meet both federal, state, and local guidelines. We’re also available to answer any questions you may have about the use of our vape products.
